Strawberry Fields Forever: The Girls of Delray Beach


I thought I was dreaming when, on my way to the pharmacy, I discovered a farm behind a typical, dreary strip mall in south Florida, and suspended my disbelief as I picked luscious strawberries from the weirdest strawberry field I've ever seen. 

Enter the Girls Strawberry Patch (right next to Dan's Fan City), go out the back door and voila -- a working farm!
This is the first view after existing the Girls' store back door.


These strawberries are grown in these strange containers, but the picking is very easy.  


One is instructed to cut the strawberries from the plants; scissors and buckets provided.

Not one to leave well enough alone, I made chocolate covered strawberries for my mother and Aunt Toots.
